Pasco man held pregnant girlfriend at knifepoint, deputies say


Man charged in attack on pregnant girlfriend

He pinned her against a wall on Saturday night, slapped her in the face and popped open a switchblade, Pasco deputies said.

"Call the cops," the man taunted the woman, who is 24 weeks pregnant with his child, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. "I'll stab you anyway."

Then, John Edward Borson, 30, a man with the word "Passion" inked across his throat and the area code for his hometown of Muncie, Ind., over his right eye, forced the knife toward her, deputies said.

The woman fought Borson off, the sheriff's report states, and he fled, slashing her car tire as he ran.

A deputy found him a street away from his house, 9420 Ogalala St., and arrested him. Borson told the deputy he had the knife and slashed the tire but denied the rest, the report states.

He was arrested on charges of aggravated domestic battery with a weapon and criminal mischief.

He remained in Land O'Lakes jail Monday in lieu of $31,000 bail.
